We scour the island’s restaurant scene to bring you the new and the noteworthy – it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it! ANTHIA CHNG checks out new burgers and shakes pop-up restaurant-bar Wolf on the Hill at the vibrant Ann Siang Hill. Psst… It’s ongoing till the end of December so you’ll have to visit fast!
Snuggled in the old home of quirky chicken restaurant Bird Bird, Wolf on the Hill is a month-long collaboration with local burger house Wolf Burger. Offering a spanking new menu of mouthgasmic bites and naughty milkshakes, this pop-up is an ideal spot for a night out with the girlfriends or the bros. Seating is limited, so we recommend going slightly earlier to beat the dinner crowd.
Grub on these:
Items on the menu are pretty pocket-friendly, with the Wolf Wagyu ($23) being the priciest of the lot. Yet, considering the quality of the meat and toppings, I’d say the burger is totally worth it. The patty was well-seasoned and incredibly juicy – it was the juiciest (and messiest) burger I’ve had in a long time. The port cheese gave it a savoury and creamy bite, with caramelised onions sandwiched in between lightly-grilled brioche buns; it was a match made in heaven. Another must-try is Bjorn’s fried chicken “Wurger” ($16), a tribute to the classic chicken and waffles dish. Think doritos-crusted fried chicken, sweet Thai chilli slaw and coconut sour cream laid on a freshly-made waffle.
If you dig milkshakes as much as I do, you’ll love the spiked, adult versions offered here. While the Kahlua dark chocolate milkshake ($12.50) was a little too sweet for my liking, it definitely packed a punch in the alcohol department. The Bailey’s Horlicks milkshake ($12.50), which tasted like a throwback to childhood days, was hands-down a favourite of mine.
Last but not least:
Move aside, fries; I’ve found my new favourite bar snack, the candied bacon chips ($8). These addictive morsels of delight were savoury and sweet in a bite; they make for the perfect beer munchies!
Wolf on the Hill is ongoing from now until 31 December 2016. Keep a lookout on their Facebook page for details!
